The annual Conservation Poster Contest provides kindergarten through twelfth-grade students an opportunity to convey their thoughts about soil, water, and related natural resource issues through art. It also highlights the educational outreach efforts of conservation districts and their state conservation associations, auxiliaries and agencies. The poster contest theme follows the annual NACD Stewardship theme.


Each year, the poster contest starts at the district level. District winners advance to the state level.  Finally, state winners advance to the National Contest. National winners are recognized each year at the NACD Annual Meeting.


Any Girl Scout or Boy Scout who creates a poster and submits it to the Colonial SWCD for judging can earn the VASWCD Poster Contest Patch.  When submitting a poster to earn the Poster Contest Patch, be sure to check the box on the entry form.
